    jcioni reacted to vernon in Fishing University - Soft Science shoes   
    It was bad enough before but, depending upon the guest, bearable when it was just Charlie Ingram but this Ray Brazier guy and his speech pattern put it completely over the edge for me.
    That plus stuff like, "Well, Charlie, we might have only caught eight ten inchers between the two boats today but one look around Lake Paid for our Food and Lodging and you can tell that it's one tremendous fishery and should be high on the must visit destination list of all our viewers."

    jcioni reacted to Ben Gillispie in Indian Point Wildlife Violators - Stringer of Short Smallmouth   
    For any of you guys who regularly fish from Indian Point Marina, be on the lookout for a silver/grey Scion. It's a little coup. There will be 4-5 or more teenagers and they've been fishing the docks around the marina. I frequent this area due to the many friends I have on D Dock. 
    At first, they were just a little annoying, but I figured I was a teenager once, so let them be. They were down last night and again tonight. 
    Beyond being a bit loud and teenager-ish, I saw them tonight with a stringer they could hardly lift just full of short smallmouth. Very few things get me going - there are a slew of illegal or frowned upon things I could witness and will almost always look the other way if it isn't affecting me or someones safety, but raping our resource of small-fish, especially smallmouth, is enough to make me call the law. I've fished the marina area for 3 years and haven't kept a single smallmouth and to see that just made me boil, especially knowing they probably had eggs. 
    I'm not a whiner and every citizen, if licensed, has the right to catch and keep their share, when beyond the trophy limit. This was simply not the case!
    Indian Point Police got there late, but I am sure they'll be back tomorrow. They boasted that they had caught 25 the last two nights, and they didn't have less than 15 shorts on a stringer. Drives me insane. I'm going to sting operation the punks tomorrow evening. If you're taking out and see the vehicle and a gang of teenagers, do us all a favor and call the law on them. I'll be down there waiting after 5. 
    Rant over. Other than this ruining my night, fishing has been good.

    Sometimes we just have to tap the brakes and give thanks for the true blessings and the mercies that we have been given as a result of the greatest sacrifice. 
    I am more blessed than I deserve and thankful for the grace that is bestowed upon me - if it were not for those two things I am not sure where I would be in this crazy world. 
    Happy Easter everyone

    jcioni got a reaction from Bass Yakker in Kayak crappie   
    Fishing a week ago, motor threw craps on me, so while the good folks at Tri Lakes Marine rebuild motor, I didn't want to waste prime crappie fishing time.  Put kayak in at ramp near Bear Den around daylight & fished until about noon, when wind became an issue.  Caught 8 keepers, biggest being 13" and many shorts.  Most were caught around standing timber in about 25 fow & fish about 8 to 10 feet deep.  Only caught one on bank.  Fished scattered.  Used 32nd oz charturse jig.  Sure missed my electronics for depth & fish.  Used the 25' length of anchor rope to judge depth.  All in all, great day to be on water..

    Put n at Bridgeport around daylight.  Fished around Bearden Cove & Virgin Bluff.  Caught limit of crappie, 13 keepers off of one tree, needless to say, I didn't burn a lot of gas today.  Big fish was 15" along with 3 - 14", and the rest in the 11.5 to 13" range.  Still throwing a 32nd oz charturse jig, letting it fall & watch for line twitch.

    Put n at Blunks around 4:30.  Lots of fish visible on gravel bar and along banks.  Not much action unless using minnows.  Water clarity very good.  Enjoyed watching eagles & hawks catching fish.  I wonder if they have a valid license. Great evening on the water,even though I didn't catch any whites.
